We’d like to think that our area was well known for being “contemporarily southern” before The New York Times’s travel section published this 36 Hours in Raleigh piece; but, it certainly helps to be recognized by the nation’s most recognized news publication.

The web-based travel guide does a great job profiling many of the unique restaurants, events, landmarks and ways to spend time hanging out in the City of Oaks for a long weekend. It also clearly dispels any lingering myths about southern stereotypes or a community unwelcome of people from the North. It’s simply not true, but could remain an issue with those who have never visited.

The profile mentions our growing craft brewery presence, the Stanbury restaurant, live music venue Kings Barcade, as well as the Carolina Rollergirls roller derby squad, Clyde Cooper’s BBQ and the ever-growing number of arts exhibits.

This may have been written for Times readers, but we bet there are plenty of locals unaware of just how much fun, culture and southern character is alive right here in the Triangle. Raleigh has really grown up. Definitely worth the read.
